There’s something about a romantic beach engagement that just makes our hearts swoon. Maybe it’s the sound of the waves crashing in the background, or the way the sand feels under your feet. Whatever it is, we can’t get enough of it! And lucky for us, there are plenty of gorgeous beaches to choose from when it comes to popping the question. From Maui to the Bahamas, there’s no shortage of beautiful locations to declare your love.
Glenn and Stephanie are engaged! Born and raised a world apart, this beautiful couple found each other using what was a new dating app at the time (Hinge) and the rest is history. Their connection and love for each other was unmistakable during our engagement session held at a lighthouse in St Joseph, MI.
What better way to start the rest of your life together than by saying “I do” with the sound of waves in the background? It’s the stuff dreams are made of! If you’re looking for a truly unique and romantic engagement, a beach proposal is sure to fit the bill.
How did you meet?
Although Stephanie was living in Illinois and Glenn was living in Indiana, their paths were able to cross with the help of a dating app. They had their first date at Wildfire in Chicago and the rest is history!
What is your proposal story?
After a day of shopping with her friends and mother, Stephanie was taken to Northerly Island Park in Chicago along the Lake Michigan shoreline. They walked her through the park’s trail with a group of people gathering at the end. They called her name and Stephanie soon realized they were members of her and Glenn’s families standing in a line. As she walked closer, they moved to the side and Glenn was standing in the middle, signaling her over. He bent down on one knee to pop the question behind a lighted “Marry Me” sign and Michael Bublé’s “Everything” playing in the background. After saying “Yes!”, she was presented with a bouquet of roses and her best friends and father on Zoom. It was a very memorable moment for everyone involved!
Tell us about the ring/band.
The engagement ring is a Tiffany Setting ring in platinum. The round brilliant diamond is held by six prongs on a knife-edge band. Stephanie once dreamed of a Tiffany ring with her friends before the couple met. Little did she know, she would meet someone who would make that dream come true.
